7 Fall Skirt Styles to Wear All Season Long

With summer’s humidity behind us, and crisp, but not too cold, weather in our future, now’s the perfect opportunity to don a fall skirt.

The best part of wearing skirts in the fall is the many iterations of the garment that the season offers: whether you prefer a plaid checked mini, sturdy midi length pleats, leather pencil skirts, or flannel-like blanket skirts, it’s time to break out your knee high boots or loafers and lightweight sweaters (if you haven’t already), the perfect pairing for the season’s very best skirts.

If 2020 has put you in a style rut, here’s a little reassurance from my colleague and skirt enthusiast, Steff Yotka, “to me, skirts have always been the most comfortable and joyous garment” even while working from home. “I’ve been wearing a series of elastic-waist Comme des Garçons skirts in floral prints. With a cotton tee or hoodie they are the perfect middle ground between cozy and Zoom-ready”, she says.

“Most importantly, they make me happy—and that’s what matters!”. We could all use a little dose of happiness these days, and this selection of sensational fall skirts might do just that.

Modern Minimalism

These practical skirts can be worn season after season, but they’ll never bore you. With modern yet trendless details like cargo pockets, hardware belts, and button fronts, welcome these wardrobe staples as the new classics.

Pieced-Together Pleats

The polished pleated skirt gets a grungy revamp this fall. With asymmetrical and uneven hems, mix and matched fabrics, these are not your average pleated midis. Instead, they’re full of personality and are sure to make a statement. Pare them back with a simple white t-shirt or a solid sweater.

Better Than Blankets

The blanket-style skirt couldn’t be more relevant this fall as we continue to spend our time mostly at home. As we stay indoors, you can do so delightfully wrapped up in the season’s softest and coziest fall skirts in brushed boucles and warm wools. The best part? The blanket-like bottom can go far beyond the couch.

The Suit Skirts

The ladylike skirt suit was one of the biggest trends that emerged from the fall runways, and the bourgeois-inspired style brings the elegant pleated midi skirt along with it.
